parts per million (ppm)

A measure of proportion by weight which is equivalent to one unit of weight of solute (dissolved substance) per million weights of solution. Since one liter of water weighs one million milligrams, one ppm is equal to one milligram per liter (mg/L). Milligram per liter is the preferred unit of measure in water or waste water analysis.
